The death of an Indian guru who built up a worldwide following of up to 50 million people has triggered an unholy scramble for control of his £5.5 billion empire.

Sathya Sai Baba's death triggers fight for his £5.5 billion empire

“Sathya Sai Baba had built his empire on the myth that he was the reincarnation of an earlier – and much loved – Indian saint of the same name.”


Sathya Sai Baba’s claims to divinity, and his apparent ability to magic holy items out of thin air were enough to win him an army of devotees, including celebrities such as Goldie Hawn, Sarah Ferguson and Hard Rock cafe founder Isaac Tigrett.

This video exposes his “ability to magic holy items out of thin air”.

From the Satguru Wikipedia article on what a true Master is like.

He is the real Sadhu, who can reveal the form of the Formless to the vision of these eyes;
Who teaches the simple way of attaining Him, that is other than rites or ceremonies;
Who does not make you close the doors, and hold the breath, and renounce the world;
Who makes you perceive the Supreme Spirit wherever the mind attaches itself;
Who teaches you to be still in the midst of all your activities.
Ever immersed in bliss, having no fear in his mind, he keeps the spirit of union in the midst of all enjoyments.
The infinite dwelling of the Infinite Being is everywhere: in earth, water, sky, and air;
Firm as the thunderbolt, the seat of the seeker is established above the void.
He who is within is without: I see Him and none else.

Have you spent time in the presence of this saibaba whom you claim to be fraud? Am sure even your own family members with whom you spend so much of time – you wont be able to understand them fully. then why bring yourself the merit of bad actions instead of being silent. If you want to speak your thoughts you need to perform certain actions. If you say I spent 5 yrs investigating saibaba, then it makes sense.

Know this – there are lots of people who face only daily challenges in life. You are one among them. And there are those who face TRAGEDIES in life. Seeing mother die in front or seeing a child die in accident before the eyes or other 100 thousand tragedies. And to bring peace to those suffering souls – divine people like saibaba presence is the only cure. Spiritual holy man presence alone can confer that peace. Give a mother million dollar after a month or two after her child does. It will not give peace. She will go out of her way seeking spiritual pursuit to attain peace. That’s how it works.

Call it jesus, allah or anyone – including shirdi sai baba. They have been hated and abused when they were alive.

Don’t go with media news. They want sensation news to make money. GO with your experience. That’s the right way.

Peace.
